Foxx, Shuster Attend 'National Journal' Forum

DOT Secretary Anthony Foxx and Rep. Bill Shuster (R-PA), chairman, House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, addressed infrastructure and repair issues at National Journal’s March 19 “Running on Empty: Tackling America's Infrastructure Crisis” event.

“Here in Washington, D.C., you don’t often see a duo like us—a Democratic member of the Cabinet, and a Republican member of Congress—on the same stage, let alone on the same side of an issue,” Foxx wrote in his blog, Fast Lane. “But crisis has a way of bringing people together, and a crisis is what we have.” See the posting here.

Shuster stressed that transportation must be seen as an interconnected system rather than individual modes such as public transit, highways or ports. “I feel confident that we will do a long-term bill, a five- or six-year bill,” he said, “because both sides of the aisle, both sides of the Capitol, both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue, everybody’s talking about a long-term bill.”
